Blog Neglect

So terribly sorry, readers. (Not completely sure who actually reads this anymore though.) Oooh, I've seen a few other bloggers do this! If you read my blog, please do write a comment about who you are/what you do/your favorite fruit/if you have a blog or a website or anything! I'd love to list you in my blogroll, and also like knowing who is out there!

Anyway. Lots of things have been happening.

It always seems that whenever I leave my shop for a couple of days, I get more sales than ever. Always! I could be sitting at home, twiddling my thumbs, thinking I'm in a slump, but the second I head over for a weekend in Boston, my inbox is flooded with message and I start to get stressed out about not being home to fill orders.

Not that I'm complaining! Just a funny way things work. I came to Boston this weekend with Ben, and while here, I went to the hippest of the hip hair salons in South Boston called Shag. Sigh. And guess what? I got BANGS. True blue bangs! I feel like a regular Rory Gilmore.

Now, for those who don't know, I have pretty wavy/thick/horrendously untamed hair, so the second I wash my newly straightened, shiny, primped locks, all will go to hell. I guess I can never wash my hair again.

That's all for now! Heading back home tonight, putting together orders, making some new drusy rings, you know, the use. (yoosh? youghe? how do you spell the abbreviated version of usual? I'll never know).



  1. Hey lady!!! You are on my "Favorite Blog" list on my bookmark bar meaning I check you everyday for new things to keep me marching forward. Stuck in Akron, OH with day after day of grey after grey you are one of many that keep me trying new ideas in sewing, crafting, photos, knitting, jewelry, home dec... whatever strikes my fancy :) I enjoy connecting with you and knowing I'm not the only one who gets excited about things or gets stuck!!! Keep plugging away please... I can't figure out how to post more than as anonymous but I'm Kimber J

  2. wow!! thanks for posting! i'm so glad you read what i write! i'll try to post some more projects that are actual projects instead of me taking mediocre pictures of things I want to do/try/have done! keep on reading!

  3. My name is Noah. I live in Washington DC, and I read your blog for recreational purposes.

    My favorite fruit is a banana because, when it comes down to it, you really just cannot beat the value.

  4. you're no rory gilmore, baby. you're joan baez.

  5. No worries! I love it when bloggers post bits about their everyday lives. Makes me realize my days don't all have to be one giant creative design adventure after another. Sometimes a lull is good for a recharge :) I think the bangs are working for you, I used to dye my hair for a pick me up until one of my kids teachers called to say that my daughter couldn't figure out what color crayon to use for my hair cuz it changed so often ;P Kimber J again

  6. My name is Amy and I live in NYC. My bills get paid because I daylight as a paralegal (moonlight as a big spender) and my favorite fruit is the mango because it tastes like a delicious swim-up bar. My website is and I'm not sure if you're aware, but:


  7. man..i thought i just got out of my 2 week "should i do something new with my hair" obsession and here you pop up with bangs. i think they look swell.

  8. I love your blog... I have it in my reader and read every post. My name is Kira Nichols and I'm a craft artist in Alabama. My favorite fruit is the avocado, though I'm not sure if it's a fruit or veg, or what. Regardless, it's my favorite! Keep up the good work... I love your amazing jewelry and am jealous of your skills on a regular basis :)

  9. my name is ben. blah blah, read your blog blah blah blah.

  10. Cuuute hair! Who cut it? I'm a big fan of Kenneth. I hope you made them give you some kind of expensive drink! Also, the Boston Patriots get their hairs cut there...

  11. I just found your blog via your etsy shop, which, btw, is awesome. I would wear every piece of jewelry you make. It's craft after my own heart, really :)

    I'm Nel and I am a psychology major, bookworm and promo-girl all in one. My favourite fruit is a raspberry, and it makes me a little cross when people go on and ON about how good strawberries are because, seriously? Raspberries are WAY better.


    I have a blog called It's only a baby.

    PS. I <3 your hair!
